Reviews & endorsements
'… a very, very distinguished book which - unlike so many others of its class - does not merely sum up, but also leads on. … the intelligent reader will find in it a vigorous and stimulating introduction to a period in which so much that affects our own generation was stirring into life.' Geoffrey Barraclough, The SpectatorSee more reviews
'… a well-ordered, balanced, scholarly, provocative and, above all, useful book … deserves the highest praise as a worthy continuation of a great tradition. For so crammed an era it is hard to imagine a better guide in this compass.' The Times Literary Supplement
